Daddhojanam / Yogurt Rice

Some how, the word daddhojanam always reminds me a serene temple and the prasadam disributed to devotees there. At temples, usually this is associated with a savory dish like Pulihora (Tamarind rice), Pongal or Lemon rice. The cooked rice is mixed with sweet yogurt and a dash of salt and lightly seasoned with spices so that the subtle flavors of spices are infused into the dish.
This dish is welcome any day at my home. Serve this simple meal alone or with a savory dish. It is particularly soothing on a hot summer day.

Cooked rice - 1 cup
Yogurt - 2 cups
For tadka:
Oil - 1 tbsp
Chandal - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Ginger chopped into fine pieces - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - A few
Red chillies - Few broken pieces

This is a simple dish to make if you have cooked rice and fresh yogurt (which is sweet and has not gone sour) ready. Mix the rice, yogurt and salt. Adjust the amount of yogurt and salt accordingly.
Heat a small pan and add ginger, chanadal, urad dal, mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves in that order. When chana and urad dals turn red, remove the pan and add it to the rice - yogurt mixture and mix well.
